Emphatically: no!

There are places in the world that will throw you in jail for using
crypto.  People in these places tend to, and probably are correct to,
avoid using keyservers for fear they'll come to the attention of the
local secret police.

If you live in a place where crypto is legal, sure, use the keyservers.
But if you're in Cuba or Syria or... (etc.), then feel free to
distribute keys in an ad-hoc fashion.

Which is exactly what that button exists to facilitate.  :)
